I have opined in the past on the need for African leaders to start requesting for auxilliary support from their citizens in the diaspora - which is economical than taking loans from the World Bank and or Western Governments as foreign aid. In my view, it is time to give African citizens a chance for them to return home and contribute to national development instead of scaring them away from the country with tough bureaucracy. Policies such as stringent customs and immigration laws are indeed wrong to the diasporans and it hurts the national reconstruction and development efforts. There is need to assist our policy-decision makers and leadership in designing a much vibrant economic policy that would enhance their policy delivery framework in stimulating growth and job creation. Africa's bureaucrats need help from academics and researchers. This is exactly what we do in Canada, whereby the federal, provincial and municipal governments work very closely with universities and think-tanks around the country. But the ice between African leadership and their diasporan population must be broken.
